Keep Calm and Teach On...

Just checkin' in...
Have you missed me?
I have been in the land of 
weddin' plans 
lesson plans.

I officially went back to school last week and have
Orientation on Monday.
I'm so excited to meet my new group of 
5th Grade Rockstars!
I've spent all day and most nights up at school
gettin' ready.
I'll do a reveal soon.

I hope you are all well.
I've missed chattin' and readin' blogs, but 
I know you all understand.

Tryin' not to sink and rememberin' to just

Happy Saturday, friends!
Sendin' you all love for a fabulous new school year!

  2. I've missed you so much Alison, but I completely understand! I've been working non-stop trying to move into my new classroom. Students start on Monday..."Oh My!" I've only had time to read a few blogs myself. Wedding planning is very exciting! I can't wait to see what you have planned!


  3. I've been wondering about you! I thought maybe you were working on wedding plans - how exciting! When do you start school? We still have two weeks but I must get myself back in the swing!

  16. Well, yeah, I have missed your wit and charm! Most definitely! I did think, however, that you were still on cloud nine and would eventually come back to the real world. Can't wait to see your classroom and congratulations again! Planning weddings is actually fun!
    Teachers Are Terrific!

  17. It seems that most of us go MIA during the beginning of the school year. Hope is going well on both fronts of planning! :)

  18. I definitely have missed you, but I also definitely understand! Even though I don't have a wedding to plan for, I am up to my eyeballs in school work since I have an ESE caseload of about 40!! I am hoping this weekend will help me get above water. :)
